Hey I got one of these and played with it. it is the best vokey wedge out there. Ive got the 6004. It certainly doesnt replace my alltime fav the 588 cleveland tg 60* but it is a great wedge.

I played the Vokey's for years, and just switched to the Clev 588. What is different then the older tour Vokey's?

Is this the retail model you're talking about?  I've seen a few in the pro shops and the grooves didn't look too deep, but they did look a little wider and sharper compared to other retail Vokey's.  

Would anyone know if they are U or V or box grooves on the spin milled?

Yeah in essence the spin milled stop the ball like the 588 tg but also damage the cover unlike the 588 tgs.

I have two Vokey, one 52 (200 Series) and a 56 Spin Milled,

and I gotta say, when I hit the Spin Milled, the ball had some very high spin on it, and I was pretty impressed with the club.

Just got done with first two practice sessions with new 60.08, disgusting spin. I'm having a little trouble opening up the blade, but that's most likely because I'm out of practice. I am, however, going to consciously avoid hitting anything other that pitches and chips with it and use my 54 for those to maintain the face condition.

I have a 56 and I really like it. I haven't had to much problem stopping the ball on the green that is for sure. It does chew up some balls though.

I have a 56* Vokey SM. This is such a great wedge. For me atleast, the 56* doesn't spin too much, making it easy for me to control the distance and spin. This is a great wedge and I recommend it to anyone who wants alittle more zip on all there wedge shots.

Is the spin milled wedge easy to bend.  Thinking about getting a 54 and bending it to 52 or 53 can that be done.

I play black nickel Vokeys and just tried the Spin Milled. Thw Spin Mill just shears the cover off of the ball and does not spin as good as the black nickel. I have not tried it using a ProV yet. Changing balls might make a difference. So far the Spin Mill has been a waste of money for me.

The spin is great, but they do tear up a ball.

My old Snake Eyes 'EV' (pre-Golfsmith) and the 588 tgs spin almost as much without the ball damage.

I like the stopping power but they sure go through the ammo.

Great wedges. I have them in 58, 60 depending if I put the hybrid in the bag or not. I like the spin around the greens and with shots 70 yards and in. I would buy the 54, 56, but for those clubs I like to control the spin and I think they would spin too much. I use the HX Tour ball and these wedges tear them up pretty good after a couple shots. Both of my wedges have s200's and sole grinds done by Joe Kwok. They work great when I want to open the face up for a flop or sand shot. The grind allows me to be more aggressive because the club won't grab the turf like wedges with no heel grind. Overall a great wedge with all of the spin you need.

Just picked up my first one of these things today. The spin is incredible. I came from the Vokey oil can and when that was new, it spun quite a bit, but not a patch on this thing. Could get 30 odd feet of spin on it and the greens are slooooooooow at the moment.

Awesome wedge. Just need to learn to control it a bit better.

Great wedge.

I have the 58* with 8* bounce. It only has a slight trailing edge grind (factory, not aftermarket)
I initially found that I was catching the ground with the heel a lot. I therefore considered grinding the heel to resolve this - however....

I also thought the lie was a touch upright for me. So, I got it bent 1* flatter - and low and behold the heel stopped digging!!

It now slides under the ball when I open the face, and doesnt dig.

The leading edge is sharp enough to cut through the turf on fuller shots, and the 8* of bounce seems to kick it back up through the grass quick enough not to slow the head down too much.

I always thought I needed some fancy grind on my lob wedge, but it appears the Bob Vokey's sole design on this particular wedge are just right!!! (for ME)

I dont tend to hit it more than 60 yards - never really been a full swing guy on the lob wedge - I prefer to use my 52* for that.
However, over the next couple of weeks I will be practising hard with this club (and the 48 and 52) see if I can get some degree of confidence over my full, half and quarter swing distances. Can only help my game  :)

So, I gave the wedge 5 stars as it works perfectly for me.

Scott  :crazy:

PS I use ProV1's and see a little bit of scuffing on these soft balls - however, I am more than happy to sacrifice a couple of golf balls for the amount of control the bigger grooves give me   :blink:

I like the way the vokeys hit, well, just as well as my cleveland 588s, the only problem I see is them chewing up the balls, they really leave a scar, this could get expensive.

I use the 56.10 and 60.08 Vokey SM wedges.  I like them pretty well.   The look and feel to me are very good.  Maybe a little more spin than the Vokey Black Nickel, but not a lot more.  I used to play with a Vokey Black Nickel 54.10 and it spun more than the Spin Milled 56 does so far.  As far as chewing up balls,  during a normal round the Pro V1 holds up pretty well to wedge shots, but my swing speed is average or maybe below average, so I might not be a good yardstick on that one.   Over all I like the Vokey very well.  The trajectory on a Vokey 60 degree wedge seems to me to be a little lower than some of the other wedges out there.  Has anyone else noticed this, or maybe it is just me.

I have a 54, and a 60.  These are the best wedges I have ever played.  Pitching with the 54 is fantastic, throw the ball directly at the Pin, and stop.  These wedges have accounted for a number of birdies.  I hope they bring out a 50 soon.

i expect to use a ball or two a round anyway so it's not a big deal. I have a 54/10 with some custom grinding of the heal and it's good for a whole bunch of different shots.....tho i find i rely on my 588 60 for most stuff close in. since i live and play in vancouver mostly, and it's a rain forest, the cuts help when it's wet but teh groove takes options away close when it's dry.

i'm down with it for the full swing 100-120 yard but have to watch the pull back sometimes when you really pinch these. i can't imagine getting a sm60 seems unnecesary. even a 56 or 58 does, well to me at least.

The 58.08 has caused me to have to re-think the way I play wedge shots because I can chip/pitch the ball very close, even without much green to work with.  Replaced my Cleveland 900 gunmetal 58 with it which was my primary pitch/chip/bunker wedge.  I used to play for some release depending on the type of shot or lie, but with the Spin Milled it drops and stops...immediately, even from rough.  Found myself really going at the pin without any roll out.  Granted, that caused me to leave some shots short at first, but when I got used to it I could get a lot more aggressive.  The Spin Milled 58 has a relatively wide flange (when compared to my Cleveland), even in the lower bounce, so it plays great out of the sand too.
  
I'm not fickle when it comes to wedges.  I've been playing my 900 gunmetals since '01, right when they were first released.  But I have to admit that it looks like they're being retired in favor of the Spin Milled's.  I'll revisit this review when the honeymoon is over, but for right now, I'm in love.

Post-Honeymoon Follow-up:

I've played my SM58.08 for about 10 rounds now and have noticed a distinct mellowing in the spin now that the grooves aren't brand new.  Still spins great though even when gouging balls out of rough.  Still love it though.  Probably will stay in my bag for years.

One Year Follow-Up Review:

I've had the SM58.08 in the bag for just over a year now and can tell you that the grooves don't produce nearly the same spin as they did in the beginning.  This would be disappointing if not for the fact that, otherwise, the wedge just feels so good and comfortable.  Its a super consistent wedge, I use it for most green side chips and bunker shots.  It doesn't spin quite as much as it did when the grooves were brand new but still probably better than most other wedges out there.  Its probably going to live in the gamer bag for a long time to come.
